across the country. i am proud that in california our delegation of democrats is a majority of women, not even counting our two senators. women are empowered in california. i also want to acknowledge that although our members are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate. senator elect tammy baldwin [applause] senator elect mazie hirono. only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that is very exciting. unfortunately we do not have kathy hochul this next congress, but the future is soon coming upon -- we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are. we are still finishing up some of our campaigns. we are very proud of the success -- as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams of american families are. they may not know that, they may not know one party from the next and the rest, but we now that without roza deluaro we would not have the lilly ledbetter paycheck fairness
system we are continuing to watch is this one here moving into northern california, around san francisco. if you have any flights in or out of here, check ahead of time. this is going to create some rain, maybe some fog with it, and it is going to be reducing visibilities, so you'll want to check on that. even out to the sierra nevadas, some snowfall will be accompanying it as well. as far as temperatures, also on the cool side with clear skies. chicago, only a high of 10, winnipeg minus 8 here going through your afternoon hours. now these temperatures will start to rebound across much of the country into the weekend, getting back to a more seasonable level. over towards europe, high pressure also dominating here. not much going on in central and eastern europe. we have a system just off the coast of portugal, starting to move onshore, will be bringing heavy rainfall. even around the straits of gibraltar, you could be seeing upwards of some very gusty winds as this continues to move overhead. and also into italy, some heavy rain showers here due to a low pressure area continuing to linge
-- alex from california, a republican caller. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span. i have complete trust in the fbi, cia, at home and security. i have complete trust within the confines of their agency walls. if you look at all of the botched terrorist plots that have been occurring since 9/11, it is absolutely amazing what our agencies are doing to keep us safe. who i do not trust is the white house suits who apparently put a spin on the nsa's official briefs and input on worldwide events. i believe the white house puts a political spin on everything that comes to the president, to the secretary of state. then to the american people. it was 9/11 when we had benghazi going down. that is a data i think the president would rather have nothing going down. apparently there was something going down. with petraeus, is it not ironic that he is now being the scrutinized over these extramarital affairs when he is about to testify in regards to what happened in benghazi. >>let's get a couple more comments on facebook and twitter. thank you for all of your calls. coming up next, congressman r
can crack that up to be decent news and upbeat news from california, it will have a $1.9 billion budget gap during its next fiscal year, that's far smaller, here is the good part, far smaller than it's seen in prior years and holds out the possibility that california may actually see surpluses within a few years thanks to spending cuts and tax hikes. those folks have their fingered crossed. >>> hamas rockets killed three in israel as they threaten a wider offensive. martin fletcher is in tel aviv and has more. >> reporter: israel and the palestinians in gaza are on the major edge of a confrontation, neither side really wants but seems to be what happens. israeli rocket attacks against gaza targeting the militant leaders of hamas are continuing and continuing to attack rocket stockpiles from gaza. israel's goal is to prevent hamas from attacking israeli citizens with rockets. there have been 850 akz ta, 100 in the last week alone. that's what israel wants to stop. at the same time hamas has been retilliating today at least 130 rockets fired from gaza into israeli cities. about 50

"the diary of a stage mother's daughter," i will tell you here a lot of us at fox talent have written books, quite a few. this is the best one. i am not exaggerating there. i am just talking about a pure emotional level. this time of year, and for those affected by storms and calamities and hardships -- >> there is hope. >> there is hope. this young lady went through a hell of a lot. she is here now. and she is making all of our lives difficult now. there is a good deal after that. we will have more after this. >>> this is v

sillier things. i was in california when austrian weightlifter got to be governor. i think that's a really good point. i think you're seeing them doing everything they can to make sure the president doesn't even try to nominate susan rice. that explains the president's anger on an even deeper level. they want john kerry in the senate because they want a chance to pick up another seat. they're ten votes behind the democrats in the senate now and i think it's the most logical explanation possible. but we want to know what you think at 1-866-55-press. john is calling us from vancouver, washington. john, are you. >> up at an ungodly hour. >> caller: after they took away the day after the election and put fox sports in place of our progressive -- >> john: can you believe it? i'm appalled. i've broadcast out of the seattle progressive talk station there when i've hosted "the stephanie miller show" and you would think that after a sweeping victory like that, it would be an indication there is an audience for progressive t

states, california, nevada and florida, have already made self-driving vehicles legal as long as the human's sitting in the driver's seat in case of a emergency. that's a good idea. meanwhile, these cars could lose worker productivity. the average commuter spends 250 hours a year behind the wheel. or they could come in handy after you've had a couple cocktails. self-driving trucks could transform the trucking industry. picture long lines of self-driving 18-wheelers traveling down the highway just a few inches apart, no drivers, no stops for gas or food, it could boost fuel efficiency as much as 20%. we're going to need to keep driving ourselves though for a while longer. experts say the driverless cars should be more common in another ten to 15 years when the costs come down. here's the question, how would you feel about riding in a car that drives itself? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on my blog. or go to our post on the "the situation room" facebook page. i don't know if i'd trust a car to drive itself. >> me either. i wouldn't feel good about it at all, jack. n

. i met a woman in california who was adopted in her 40's because she was reunited with a woman who used to care for her, she grew up in foster care, became successful but when they were reunited they still loved each other the same way they had done 40 years earlier and decided to be a family. it's quite a miracle of loving and bonding that happens through adoption. frank and i, my lus and i are so proud to be the parents of two extraordinary chirp who happen to be adopted. we've built our family through adoption. my husband was, in fact, adopted out of an orphanage from ireland when he was 5 years old and still remembers the day when the may tron of this little brought assistant home for children came up and walked up to him and said ernest, pack your bags, your mom and dad are here to take you home. he saw his mother and father, adoptive mother and daughter father, brother and sister, and the rest is history, came to america and received an excellent education, has gone on to be a wonderful, wonderful citizen, of course, a great father and loving husband. so grateful for that opp
